Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (CAMS) and Peking Union Medical College (PUMC)

Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College are seeking global talents

A leading force in medical research and education

Peking Union Medical College (PUMC), founded in 1917, was the first medical school in China to offer an eight-year curriculum leading to an M.D. degree. It was merged with the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (CAMS) in 1957, a leading medical research facility. Now operating as a single institution, CAMS and PUMC have been at the forefront of medical research innovation in China for over a century, providing world-class research facilities, opportunities and expertise. CAMS and PUMC also play a pivotal role in advising the government on health policy research and medical education reforms, as well as in safeguarding public health.

All-rounded resources for global talent

As a core base for building a national medical science and technology innovation system, CAMS and PUMC provide abundant resources for bright minds from around the world, offering them a platform for growth. The national-level comprehensive research institution integrates medical research, education, services, prevention and industry.

Key Facts:

  • 19 research institutes, 6 hospitals, and 9 schools
  • 26 members from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering
  • 1,073 PhD supervisors and 1,437 supervisors for master’s student
  • CAMS Academic Advisory Committee with 6 academic divisions and 217 members, all of whom are top scientists
  • 24 national platforms for intramural scientific research, including 6 State Key Laboratories and 5 National Clinical Research Centres

Talent-centered innovation-driven ecosystem for medical research

CAMS and PUMC offer full support to newly hired researchers, with internationally competitive compensation packages and research funding. To encourage curiosity-driven exploration, we provide abundant long-term, non-competitive grants so that investigators can concentrate on their basic research. CAMS Innovation Fund for Medical Sciences (CIFMS), covering almost all academic areas in medical sciences since 2016, will strongly provide sustainable support for global talent. These benefits are coupled with our advanced research facilities and equipment, along with ample student support. For those who focus more on applied research, we have rich clinical resources, with access to six hospitals and five national clinical medicine research centres. Various platforms are set up to support collaboration with internal and external groups. Having implemented a tenure-track system in line with international standards, we can also ensure sustained support for tenured faculty members. For younger researchers, we have a mentor system to offer advice on grant applications, project management, and more. In addition, housing allowances, as well as office and lab space will be offered. CAMS and PUMC aim to provide the best environment for researchers.
